Asthma

What is Asthma?

Asthma is a common and long term lung condition that requires ongoing management. It affects about five million people in the UK. This information is for adults and children over 12 years old. 

The symptoms of Asthma commonly start in childhood but it is possible to develop asthma at any age. Asthma tends to run in families, especially when there’s also a history of allergies and/or smoking. This condition can be well controlled with a good Asthma action plan.

What happens in asthma? 

Your airways carry air in and out of your lungs. If you have asthma, they are very sensitive. Certain things trigger the muscles around your airways to tighten, making your airways narrower. The airway lining also becomes inflamed causing a build-up of sputum. This makes your airways even narrower. With narrow airways, it’s harder to get air in and out of your lungs.

How does asthma affect the airways? 

When a person with asthma comes into contact with something that irritates their sensitive airways even more (an asthma trigger), it causes their body to react in three ways:

  • the muscles around the walls of the airways tighten so that the airways become narrower
  • the lining of the airways becomes inflamed and starts to swell
  • sticky mucus or phlegm sometimes builds up, which can narrow the airways even more.

These reactions cause the airways to become narrower and irritated – making it difficult to breathe and leading to asthma symptoms, such as chest tightness, wheezing, or coughing.

Approximately 250,000 people die prematurely each year from asthma; almost all these deaths are avoidable (Pawankar R, et al, 2013)

  • 5.4 million People in the UK are currently receiving treatment for asthma: 1.1 million children (1 in 11) and 4.3 million adults (1 in 12). (Asthma UK, 2017)

Types of Asthma

There are several sorts of asthma and it is classified in various forms. However there are two main asthma type: -Allergic asthma, Non-allergic asthma. 

Allergic Asthma

Main characteristic of allergic asthma is there is one or more allergens (house mites, pets, pollens, aspergillus etc…) to which patients are sensitive. This sensitivity can be shown by allergic skin tests or IgE blood evaluating. Allergic asthma’s first symptoms are seen at childhood. Other allergic illnesses such as allergic catarrh, eczema, medicine allergy, food allergy etc. are very frequently seen on patient and his family. Allergic asthma gives good answer to medicine treatment and immunotherapy. 

Non – Allergic Asthma

There is not a definite allergen to which patient is sensitive; skin tests are negative and IgE limits in blood are normal. The reasons of asthma crisis of these patients are viral infections (catarrh, influenza etc.) cold weather, dirty weather, cigarette smoke, medicine (aspirin, analgesic, rheumatism medicines…), food additives, dye, polish, varnish, perfume, stress etc… On many patients illness symptoms occur after 30 years of age. Other asthma and other allergic illnesses are seen on these people’s families as same frequently as normal people. Progress of non-allergic asthma is more chronic than allergic asthma; crises are heavier and resistant to treatment. Immunotherapy is not applied to these patients.

What causes Asthma?

The exact cause of asthma is unknown. People with asthma have swollen (inflamed) and “sensitive” airways that become narrow and clogged with sticky mucus in response to certain triggers.

Genetics, pollution and modern hygiene standards have been suggested as causes, but there’s not currently enough evidence to know if any of these do cause asthma.

 We do not know what causes asthma, but we do know that many things can make it more likely that someone will get asthma. Asthma often runs in families and people who have allergies – especially those under the age of 16 – are at a higher risk.

Asthma associated with allergy usually starts in children. But some people develop asthma as adults and this is often not associated with allergic triggers. 

Some people can develop asthma by repeatedly breathing in certain substances, especially while they’re at work, for example when they’re paint spraying, baking and welding. 

How does Asthma emerge?

Both environmental and hereditary factors play a role on asthma. In order a person to be asthmatic, first of all he has to have genetic predisposition. This genetic predisposition is under the control of many factors. Thus, a person who has predisposition to asthma, one day starts to show asthma symptoms under effect of environmental factors (dirty air, cigarette, viral infections, dense allergen contact…). According to researches, about %40 of people have predisposition to asthma genetically, but asthma emerges only on definite portion of these people. 

What are the Environmental Factors for Asthma?

When people who genetically have predisposition to asthma are exposed to environmental factors below, asthma development risk starts to rise:

  • Having been excessively exposed to allergens (house dust, pets, aspergillus, etc. since the day borne
  • Mother’s smoking while pregnancy
  • Smoking in house since early years of childhood –
  • Dirty air
  • Viral respiration system infections (bronchiolit)
  • Unhealthy settling of houses (traffic, houses near factories and work-sites etc.)
  • Unsuitable house conditions (badly aired, dark and damp environments
  • Various materials added in food and beverage (sweeteners, materials giving smell and preventing decomposition)
  • Stress
  • Factors related to climate.

Although people who are not exposed to these environmental factors genetically have predisposition to asthma, it is possible that they do not show any symptom belonging to asthma during their lifetime. Environmental factors are mentioned in ‘Allergy’ section in detail.
